Suppose that you may have to rearrange the letters plus the missing ones to make the word/spell.

So if the missing letter was "E" then the word/spell could be:
D-I-C-E

I'm not sure bout Dice or Cinder - i reckon that it would be something to open a staircase/lift etc - if was S3 say then maybe dice, but as it's 7. bVa - any help here? Think it really is beginning to annoy people, myself included! Isn't the next ep where ************SPOILER ALERT*************

how would you use letters to get across the spikes?

i considered the letters matching numbers, but 'I' is the 9th letter of the alphabet and the chessboard was 8*8.

It wasn't to get the numbers, as they were already given those. Maybe it was a spell to help the dungeoneer see.

Does anyone think that this quest was distinctly more difficult than others in series 7, largely because they were older? I had trouble following the clues and plot myself - I certainly didn't tag on to what the team should have done in the stool room. This team definitely had the hardest job - a VERY tense quest.
I like my telly scary, and very dungeonish.

Quest 5 of Series 7 was recently raised in the 'quests u did not understand' thread.
KaM wrote: Series 7, Quest 5 (Ben): not only can I not conjure what on Earth the spell they were collecting might be, other than perhaps the name of the troll, but would they then have had to cast it during the Trial by Spikes when the troll appears? How could it possibly help other than making the thing disappear or invisible?
Earlier in the series when Nicola's 'losing status' caught up with her, i.e. when she found herself in a dark room with no Nightsight, a troll arrived behind her, as if to emphasise that she had ventured up an infamous scatological creek without paddling apparatus. ;) (An echo of what Grimwold did to Kelly in Series 3, possibly?) The troll that came up behind Ben may have been doing the same thing; or perhaps, as Grimaldine Grimwold speculated,
Grimaldine Grimwold wrote: the troll was just imported because they didn't have the spell they'd need in a few rooms time, so there was no point in continuing.
I've come to the opinion that the spell would have been

And its purpose:

Lissard said that the spell was required "for access to Level Three", and the descender was referred to various times during Series 7, and earlier, as "the descendant device". Since the team collected C, I, missed at least one letter then collected D, it would have been an anagram, but a fairly obvious one once all the letters had been acquired. I imagine that the team would have reached a dead end, and casting DEVICE would have revealed the descender, as Hordriss' magic did for Team 3 of Series 7.

See... in the earlier series, Ben would have just got through to wherever they needed to cast it, and been stuck, thus his life force running out. Ah, how times change.

I personally have just watched this episode again and belive they deserved to die I mean Majida made it clear there was NO spell path hidden there/
Also they daudled through level 2 so I reckon Timj decide to kill them off.

I would love to know what possible motive Grimaldine could have had for telling Sly there was a fish in the barrel!

So much for Majida's prophetic powers, immediately deciding they had "not much of a chance" with Julie and team. :P
